Introducing, develop Embedded

Back to Hub

What’s the link between the fitness tracker on your wrist, the central heating system in your home, the cash point on the high street and the microwave in the office kitchen?

It’s a bit of a head-scratcher but seeing as it’s unlikely to come up in your next pub quiz, we’ll save you the hassle of working it out – all four items rely on embedded software. Without their standalone, on-board programming, they simply wouldn’t work.

Despite those items, and thousands like them, being nothing new in our lives, the embedded software market is absolutely booming. From a valuation of $12 billion in 2018, it is on course to reach $20 billion by 2025 – a near-doubling of the market within less than a decade.

We want to not only facilitate that growth, but further it too. 

Creating connections

As our world becomes more and more connected, with everything from water bottles to waste bins now being labelled ‘smart’, demand for Embedded Software Engineers is only going to grow. Car manufacturers wouldn’t dream of making their latest model without a team of Embedded Software Engineers on board, and advancements in medical technology are changing the face of healthcare for the better.

All of which rely on talent. In order to create a more connected tomorrow, businesses require professionals who not only have experience in software engineering, but who also have a deep understanding of hardware and physical engineering. It might sound like finding needles in haystacks but operating in niche talent markets is what we do best.

Where in the world?

We’re an international business. We most recently launched in Miami, our headquarters are in London, and we have teams working throughout the German market – and it’s here that we are seeing huge growth in Embedded. But why?

Germany is a famed automotive hub. It exports more vehicles than any other country in the world, with international sales adding almost $140 billion to the nation’s GDP each year last year. On top of that, it is Europe’s leading MedTech employer, second-largest aerospace exporter, and the continent’s most automated nation. It just so happens that these are a handful of the key industries that are driving growth in the embedded market, making Germany extremely well-placed to benefit from its expansion.

The country also has a vast number of universities that have acted quickly to provide students with an unrivalled education in embedded software engineering – RWTH Aachen, Stuttgart, Darmstadt Technical, Duisburg-Essen, and Technical University of Berlin to name but a few.

All in all, Germany has not only benefited from having a head start in Embedded’s key markets, but it has also reacted quickly to maintain its lead.
